VHI 'TTATY ELMO got a glimpse o( her face, puckered with fright and worry, in the rearvievv mirror nnd eased up on the accelerator. There was no use going nowhere in such a hurry. Chris had always said that. Chris thought that people drove themselves loo hard through life but he drove himself just a little harder than most, But with Chris it was the hook, always the book. "I must read it," Katy thought, although she had not been able to touch the don whore he haci worked that night—so late. She frowned as memory stirred. She hati been over it nil 50 many times, seeking the answer that had to be there, Ihe answer to why Cr.rif h-Tfl gone out that nighl why he had gone lo the store. Si:e had graded test papers that niaht. Composition IV, until 11 o'clock ami her head was splitting she went to bed. F,von up- stnirs. she could hear Chris thumping away on the old typewriter tncy both had used in high school and she drifted olT to sleep in one of the creative silencer that some- limes Deemed Joud in Vie den. When she wakened it was to hear Chris hurrying downstair? and out the front door: she called to him but he didn't hear and a moment Inter his car spun gravel in the driveway. Chris was having one of his had times with the book, r.hc li^d guessed, and bar] gone ba.'k lo sleep—nnd then Ted had c.>mc lo awaken her. Chris was dead. What now? What next? The tetr.po of ttu engine of her car seemed lo be a5)<ing that question. What was in store for her? Some- nr.o had cut the phone line and there could be only one reason for that. The person who had killed A^nes Jerome wanteci to kill Katy too. It had Hccn foolish to plunge headlong out ol Ihe house, fool- hardy to leave the only advantage she had—shelter, with her and Major inside il. The killer was outside and so long as he was. "So am I outside. Outside and, therefore, vulnerable." She realized she was thinking like Chris and Ted on those occasions when they were lost in memories of practice maneuvers . . . you did this because if you did thnt your position was made known to trie enemy and you were vulnerable. Katy shrugged oft the memory of the two voices raised friendly argument thrmigh KG many pleasant evenings. She had mndc tlie wrong move, she was vulnerable. She turned into the sleeping side .?t reel where Dave Argus lived with his sister arid her liusbnnd. Finn-,-* Ward miglil Ihink plenty about Dave's old girl coming calling nt daybreak in robe and slippers, but she would keep her own cminset, at least. Dave would see to that, Knly curbed Ihe car, started to order Mrtjor to "Stny!" and thought belter of Ll. Major at her side was rcawuring. She touched the bell. h«nr« U jangle discordantly somewhere inside, and waited. And waited. Forever, it seemed. • * • 'THEN Deputy Sheriff Dave Argus • was at the door, sleep dropping from him like a sight of her. "Katy! What happened? Come inside!" She was inside, shp and M,-i;or, and the door closed behind them almost before he sloppM talking, "Is something wrong? Katy, you're shaking! Here, let me—-sit down, Kaly." He led her a step or two to a chair an<i his hnncjs were genlte on her shoulders as he sat her down. Katy sank into the ohafr gratefully. She bad not realized how weak with fright she was until Dave touched her. She looked up. to the question in the cloudy gray eyes that could be so gay. "I—" suddenly she didn't know how to tell him—"someone was there, in the burn." The words came then, pouring over one another. "I tried to call but the telephone was dead." "What!" Dave Argus cried. Kaly stumbled on, "All I could think of was (hat someone had cut the wires. It—it sounds s-silly. doesn'^ril?" It did. Strangely, hearing her rushing words bog down in their >wn imaginative idiocy, it sounded utterly foolish. The mad night- naic of a frightened woman. Katy :>H her lip. Dave didn't believe her. lio'd think, she wa.t just trying to throw suspicion away from her- solf, she hnd read about murderers who Hid lhat. It does not!" Dave hnd the telephone in his hand. She heard him Kive a number; then, "Pete! Dave Ar^us. I'm coming by. I don't know. May bo." He hung up "You stny here, Kaly. My sister Krnnin cnn fix you up with some clothes, if necessary, but stay 'icre!" 'I'd rather—" AVE went to Ihe door, called lo his sister, and came back. "I shouldn't have let you stay oul there. I should have eucsserl—-" "Y<ni ami Ted." Katy smiled at his concern. "I'm sorry I ran like a baby, Dave. I won't again, I promise. I,et me go back with '.vilh you?" Argus shook his head. He turned lo Mrs. Kmma Ward, who came in belting a robe around her ample figure. "Can you diij Katy sumo clolhcs, Km? And keep her here?" K'rnma looked from her brother lo Kaly. "Do I say yes?" "He says so," Katy nodded. nt- ?rtjs :><i, rwaty noiioort. "Yes to both questions, F-m,* Dave told her firmly. Then, with n twinkle, "You micht feed her, too. They say it helps."
